Most Successful Kerfuffle Picks
Grave, Quince, Argagarg, Lum, and Rook at near 60% winrates. O-ok. I mean, I really don't know what to say about that. That's pretty wild. Historically Grave and Arg do very well in this format, but I have to assume that Lum and Rook are doing some real work as counter-picks, or they're exploiting some player weaknesses. ...or they're getting lucky by never matching up against Argagarg players.
Valerie is doing well, which is not a surprise. Gwen tho?! That's definitely a surprise to me. Both relatively popular and relatively successful? GWEN META CONFIRMED?!?! She even beat out Persephone in the winrate wars, as is canonical for their match-up! Madness.
Onimaru continues to do okay in this format, which is surprising given how freaking popular Argagarg is. Confirmed 50/50 match-up? I've certainly been taken to town in it. And I mean, it's better for Onimaru than for Rook... Hmm.
BBB counterpicked grapplers three times and then lost the next match 4 times... somehow. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Gloria, having more popular characters to counterpick still seems not to have worked out on the whole. The perils of playing a complicated character for a single advantaged MU? Could be.
Setsuki with 34% winrate. Definite outlier in this event. Maybe she's not as brainless as people like to claim! Could... could Fivec be... good? It remains to be seen if we'll finally have a non-ninja character win the last game in grandfinals. I... I'm not ready to believe quite yet, given my losses in winner's finals.
Menelker may have killed Midori in Yomi lore, but in this tournament they're both dead characters. Small consolation that they performed better than the undead assassin and eternal holder of the 'Worst Character in 19XX' award, Jaina.
Edit: looking at Waifu 2 results, I have to take back my shade at Jaina. Seems like last event she finished with a 47% winrate! Look, no one is more surprised than I am, frankly.
